Three candidates have been nominated for election or re-election to the board: Margaret Decker, Richard Stanley and Mark Sutton. Their Candidate statements can be viewed here.
Since there are fewer candidates than places available on the board, there will be no ballot. The independent chair of our Election Management Group, Craig Sloman of Charlton Athletic Supporters Trust (CAST), will put the candidates before the meeting for the approval of members.
Craig is Vice-Chair of CAST and has also agreed to be on the panel for the Question & Answer session at the end of the meeting and answer questions about the situation at Charlton Athletic. Both Blues Trust and Charlton Athletic Trust are part of the Supporter Trust movement, which seeks to gain more influence for fans in the running and ownership of their clubs.
